This video is a convocation speech written by David Foster. I found that this video really relates to the first question posed in this weeks lab: “are you a glass have full or glass half empty” kind of person. Though we may bounce from being a “glass half full” to “glass half empty,” we have a choice in how this impacts us emotionally. When this choice seems impossible, and a certain way of thinking begins to impede our function in our daily lives is when it starts to affect our mental and physical health.
In this video, David Foster really emphasizes that the way we choose to view situations or understand the people around us in everyday situations can help mold our daily experiences. He creatively and eloquently expresses that our experiences could be viewed both negatively or positively but this experience is based on our ability to control our thoughts.
